It's Working! I'm now receiving items for the Blog. Jane's Painting of Madrid coming up.

Jane Milner-Barry went to Madrid in February for 2 weeks while they were experiencing a heatwave; and has asked me to point out that as an environmentally responsible traveller she took the train to Spain.  www.themaninseat61.co.uk  is a good website for would-be train travellers.
 
 It's the most marvellous place to go and not the most expensive destination. There were 4 night breaks advertised in Saturday's Guardian supplement for £189per person including flights- www.guardianholidayoffers.co.uk/great-getaways 
Not as environmentally friendly as taking the train.
Benoit Philippe suggested Jane try using a pochade box which she did on this trip.

Here is a sample of what she painted:
 Atocha Railway Station
 Botanical gardens in the afternoon
 Botanical Gardens in the morning
 Retiro Lake
 Retiro Lion
 Retiro Urn
Sorolla Museum
They make me want to visit Madrid.
